Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "Big Daddy Love" and hot peppers

Cliff - I checked with my lawyers and I am allowed to respond to this post as it doesn't refer to the "other" stuff in the thread.

I too had a great time watching the stuffed shirts swilling their wine and loosening up and enjoying a kick ass set from Big Daddy Love. Thursday night is running about 60/40 yes and it's all dependent on what time they start. I'll try and find out and let you know as soon as I can.

Have you gotten in to the chili and the pepper paste yet?

For the curious, here's the pepper break down.

The 7 larger red peppers in the top right are bhut jolokia Ghost peppers - the third or fourth hottest pepper in the world with a Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) rating of around 1.2 million. I ate one on a self dare (note, never do that to yourself) and I went deaf for about 5 minutes. I thought I was going to die. Mrs. Mando questioned her judgement on a decision she made 29 years ago, my daughter was mortified that she has my genes, my son thought it was "cool". I will never do that again until next fall at Festy after bourbon and apple pie moonshine.

The three dark, round chilis in the bottom right are Black Pearl - about the same heat as a jalapeno, more of a citrus crispiness to it.

The small white peppers are white habaneros - they are some of the best tasting peppers I have ever grown. They have a superb smokiness along with the traditional habanero flavor. They will kick your ass - they are hot, around 400,000 SHUs.

The seven smaller red peppers and the two slightly elongated purple peppers on the left are Chinese 5 Color Aji peppers. In between a tabasco and a serrano as far as heat, great flavor.

The four small purple peppers in the top center are hot purple beauty peppers. Similar in heat and flavor to the Black Pearls.

The gem in the top left is a chocolate habanero. Similar in taste to the white habs, but even smokier. It is excruciatingly hot.

Btw "bhut" means ghost in Nepali. But the sense of a ghost is different, so it's not like saying Casper the Ghost Chili ... they don't "haunt" so much as cause trouble, like demons, but if you're lucky they'll also do your housework and fieldwork. But then they may eat you. Tricky devils.

AR - What do the Nepalese say about "ghosts" causing 'significant emotional events'? Because I most certainly had one when I ate a Ghost pepper. It caused troube, it haunted me, it rearranged my esophagus, it cleaned my large and small intestines and that was in the first 45 seconds. The heat and pain built for about 15 minutes and then gradually subsided.

It was freakin' awesome......

Dunno, but to get past ghosts, grab the tail of a cow. That's what I've heard. Did you not have a cow handy?

Mando that's the beauty of life. People as diverse as those of us here at the LMA can rationally discuss our differences and revel in our like interests...food, beer, Scotch(blended for me please), Grateful Dead just to name a few.

Trinidad Moruga Scorpion ranks as high as 2,009,231 the Scoville scale. The world's hottest commercially available chili pepper is still the Naga Bhut Jolokia.
